Drobak is a wonderful wooden village that is just 30 minutes south of Oslo. It is located on the east side of Oslofjorden. The village was once a pilot station. It would serve as the winter port for when the capital and the fjord closer were ice bound.
The village offers narrow streets similar to those that were found during the 18th and the 19th centuries. It is a popular area to live in and many people enjoy staying here during their summer holidays. The Oslofjord tunnel, which is 7.2 kilometers long, was opened in the year 2000. This tunnel runs under the fjord from Drobak to the western shore.
Drobak offers a large Christmas exhibition that is open all year. It consists of a Christmas house, a post office that is run by Father Christmas’s helper, as well as other displays. The main square is called Torget and the streets offer art galleries, shops, and several places to eat.
Located nearby is Badeparken. This is a great park area that offers a beach. There is a small harbor with a sea water aquarium displaying many of the local fish species as well as other marine life. The maritime collection is located next to the aquarium and offers a history of the coastal heritage of the area.
